WEP is short for Wired Equivalency Privacy and it is a security protocol for Wi-Fi networks.

If it is asking for your WEP, you will need to know what the password you entered into you wireless router was. That same password will need to be entered into the field on your PS3.

If you are unsure of the password, try logging onto your wireless router and check the settings out under wireless security.

To identify your wireless router web page, type the model into Google and look for the online link. If you didn't set a admin password then the default one will still be active.

If you still have questions, drop another post.

Hi. My wifi internet connection requires online password verification, So i have to open web browser and provide userid and login to start using internet. But my Ps3 browser is not showing the pop up...


The PS3 browser doesn't work so well with that kind of stuff. You generally do all the authentication during the setup with your wirless router.
Try changing your password, using a different brand of routers, or simply change your security type like TSPK-WEP, or plain TSPK

My son has a PS3 connected through a linksys router (wireless ) in the uk. A couple of days ago his system didnt work and has changed some of the settings..doh I have changed the ssid back to what is...


If the PS3 wont accept your WEP or WPA password it is because it is not the one you chose when you set up the network. The first thing you should do is temporarily disable security on your network and try to connect with your PS3, just to be sure there is not a problem with your network.

If that works, enable either WEP or WPA encryption and choose a new password.
